STAGE TEN is an advanced production platform that gives you tools to create dynamic live streams on YouTube, Twitch, Facebook, or Twitter.
Always use the latest version of Google Chrome.
Turn off any ad-blockers - anything that blocks UDP traffic will create issues.
Disable any VPNs in use, as they may throttle bandwidth between locations.
Use the strongest internet connection available (ethernet > wifi).
Close any non-essential browser tabs or applications.
If using a laptop, we recommend keeping it plugged in.
Using a headset will provide a better experience.

Note: How to set up your Stream on YouTube
YouTube offers two types of live streaming:
- Live Stream Now (go live immediately) - you can live stream to YouTube for FREE on STAGE TEN
- YouTube Live Events (go live at a scheduled time) - you need to have a paid plan at any level to stream to a YouTube live event
Whenever you stream on the free plan, YouTube has set default values for you for stream title, description, category, and most importantly, privacy.
You can change these defaults at https://www.youtube.com/live_dashboard under BASIC INFO. Change them to what you want. Make sure the status bar at the top of the page reads 'all changes saved' after any changes.
These default values apply every time you Live Stream Now on YouTube.
